Buttface had had a previous incarnation, and he said that he had once come to this land. “Had he?”
“But which life was it? Was it in the Celestial Emperors era or in the Gods era?”
The expressions of Duan Jiude and Xu Que made it obvious that they were deep in thought. Buttface had mentioned something about an ancient city, but his last impression of this land had been at a time when cultivators resided here.
Now, they couldn’t see even a single brick here, let alone an ancient city’s ruins. According to the speed at which nature recovered itself, Buttface’s previous incarnation must have been in a distant era. It could even have been in the Gods’ era.
“You have been here before? Was this land also a part of your domain?” Liu Jingning spoke with surprise. She had once seen Buttface use a drop of Kylin Blood to make an Ancestral Return, and she knew that the South Continent’s Mystery Land had been one of Buttface’s domains in his previous life. This was why after she heard him utter such words, she was stunned once again.
As for Mo Junchen, he wore an odd look as he looked at Liu Jingning. “Do you believe his absurd claims?”
Mo Junchen shook his head and didn’t give this matter any consideration. He continued examining the surroundings.
At this moment, Xu Que glared at Buttface and said, “Reply truthfully, was it you who set up the Rubble Formation Spell? It didn’t really harm anyone, yet it surprised me.”
“F*ck! I’m not responsible for that. I just have a faint impression of this place. Only one or two scenes have flashed in my mind with a sense of familiarity. It’s obvious that I am not too familiar with this land. This is surely not my domain, and the Formation Spell wasn’t set up by me,” Buttface emphasized his innocence clearly.
“This is not the time to argue over this. Mr. Buttface, since you have a faint impression of this place, you should quickly think about where there is a land suitable for planting Chiliad Gold Resurrection Vines.” Duan Jiude waved his hand and looked expectantly at Buttface.
Buttface rolled his eyes and said, “Mr. Duan, are you stupid? I said a while ago that everything has been turned upside down in this land, and it has thoroughly changed. Even if I knew of a place suitable for planting the Chiliad Gold Resurrection Vines, it would have disappeared after so many years.”
“What about that Fire Mountain?” Xu Que asked suddenly, shifting his gaze to the most central region.
Here, there was a mountain peak that reached the clouds, and it was absolutely tremendous. It didn’t seem any different from an ordinary mountain, but it could still make people’s hearts palpitate with fear.
“A Fire Mountain… It sounds familiar. But I still can’t really picture it. Just a single scene flashed through my mind a while ago, and I have discovered due to this that I have been here in my previous lives. It’s limited to just this,” Buttface wore a sullen look and spoke.
“He, he!” Xu Que chuckled disdainfully and shook his head. “Really… What use are you?”
“F*ck!” Buttface got angry, and he glared at Xu Que. He said, “Lad, why don’t you speak again? Do you have the nerve to say that again?”
“What use are you?”
“F*ck! At least I have once been here, while you bunch have never been here.”
“Even if you have been here, what use are you? Can you show us the way?”
“I can,” Buttface patted his chest and shouted.
Afterward, Buttface looked dazed, and he opened his mouth, while a startled look appeared on his face. “F*ck! I have suddenly recalled more memories about this place. I seem to have recalled some regions.”
This time, it was really the case! After Buttface was provoked by Xu Que, he had really remembered more about this area.
The corners of Xu Que’s mouth twitched. He was speechless.
A while ago, he had just wanted to ridicule this fool, and he didn’t expect that Buttface would recover some of his memory due to his anxiety.
“This is really… All I can say is that the ancients can’t deceive me. Once a dog gets anxious, it would even jump over walls.”
“Ha, ha! I’m so awesome. Come over, and let’s walk through here. If it’s this area, then I still have some impression of it, and there are several places where the Chiliad Gold Resurrection Vines could be planted.”
Buttface laughed heartily and confidently, before he pointed at the southern region.
This was one of the regions marked up on the jade slip map given to Xu Que by Bai Cailing.
“Buttface! Now, you have understood my efforts, haven’t you? If I hadn’t forced you, would you have made any progress? Isn’t that right?” Xu Que spoke sincerely, before he patted Buttface’s shoulder.
Buttface nodded repeatedly. “That is right!”
“Okay, it’s fine as long as you understand it. So, show us the way quickly!” Xu Que said with a smile.
“Okay!” Buttface turned around excitedly and started running.
Xu Que looked at Duan Jiude, Liu Jingning, and the others who were all frowning and shrugged his shoulders. He spoke with pride, “Did you see that? I have settled this matter.”
“It’s only a fool who can be fooled so easily.” Liu Jingning shook her head resentfully.
As for Duan Jiude, he chuckled bitterly.
Afterward, they strode forward as they followed Buttface and traveled onward.
The sole person who still couldn’t make sense of the current situation was Mo Junchen, and he wore a dumbfounded look. He was stunned!
“Is this possible?”
“Did you really believe that dog’s claims?”
“Was he really here in his previous lives?”
“Do you believe such absurd claims?”
“Have you turned stupid?”
As Mo Junchen looked at the crowd that was getting far away from him, he shook his head helplessly and followed them.
Even though Buttface did recall some images, this place had changed greatly because innumerable years had passed since the last time he was here. This was why he had to ponder carefully and make guesses before proceeding onward.
After a whole day had passed, the group stopped next to a valley.
“It should be here, I still remember that this valley has two entrances. One of them leads to the inside of the valley, while the other leads to a region inside the mountain,” Buttface pointed at the mountain and spoke.
The second entrance mentioned by Buttface led them to the inside of a hollow mountain that had a structure similar to a volcano. The mountain’s peak was exposed thoroughly, and many spiritual herbs were growing there, while the entrance was hidden well, and it would be rarely discovered by people.
Xu Que stood next to the valley for a while, and he didn’t discover the second entrance, but he was still delighted.
Since this place was so hidden, it was likely that it was the location where the Divine Farmer Clan had planted the Chiliad Gold Resurrection Vines. Even if that wasn’t the case, it should still be filled with precious natural resources since no one had entered this place for innumerable years.
“Let’s take a walk and go inside.” Xu Que waved his hand,and asked Buttface to guide them.
“Wait, I have to think about the way to open the entrance. Give me six or seven minutes.” Buttface shook his head and stood in front of the valley while wearing a grave look. He was looking around thoughtfully.
Buttface rarely revealed such a serious look, and when Xu Que and his companions saw this, they didn’t disturb Buttface, but waited patiently next to him.
At this moment, Xu Que suddenly heard a sword’s buzzing sound, and it was transmitted from the System’s Deposit Storage Space.
Xu Que was taken aback, and he promptly summoned the System interface. The sharp sword that contained the Sword Spirit was shivering.
“F*ck! Sword Spirit, what is wrong with you? Why are you shivering so much?” Xu Que used his mind to question it.
“I’m trying to struggle free of the sealing power,” the Sword Spirit replied softly.
Xu Que was startled once again. “What is happening? Who has suppressed you?”
“It was the previous child. He was also a spirit,” the Sword Spirit replied.
Xu Que’s expression instantly changed. “Do you see him?”
“That’s right. At that time, I wanted to warn you, but I had been suppressed by him before I could emerge.” The Sword Spirit transmitted its voice once again. Its voice was quite calm, as if being suppressed wasn’t any humiliating matter.
Xu Que was shocked greatly. The Sword Spirit was a being that followed a Celestial Emperor, yet it had been suppressed by a child before it could fight. So the child must be a being at the same level as a God.
What was more terrifying was that from beginning to end, that child was just an illusion.
Since he could suppress the Sword Spirit, then… His curse was probably real.
